CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2015 in Las Vegas
• CarPlay (Apple) and Android Auto (Google) coming on board this year
• Automated parking
• Inductive charging of electric vehicles
The future belongs to systematically networked vehicles operated with intuitive systems. It's therefore only fitting that Volkswagen is presenting the Golf R Touch at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES / January 6–9): The vehicle is the first compact model in the world whose control elements are operated using hand gestures. Whereas the Golf R Touch offers a preview of the medium-term future, the so-called Connected Golf presents fascinating solutions from the present day. For example, the vehicle allows for the incorporation of the completely different "MirrorLink™", "Android Auto" (Google), and "Car Play" (Apple) smartphone interfaces into the "App Connect" system. Plans call for "App Connect" to be launched in the U.S. and Europe in conjunction with the latest infotainment systems before the year is out.
With its Golf R Touch concept, Volkswagen is presenting in Las Vegas a vehicle that can precisely interpret hand gestures and convert them into commands. In other words, the technology makes it possible to control displays and functions by means of hand movements without having to touch a touchscreen. For example, a swipe gesture toward the windshield causes the sunroof to close, while the same movement in the opposite direction will open it. The seat adjustment feature in the model is just as clever. The result is a vehicle that enables humans and machines to function as an interactive unit.
The Connected Golf is the most effectively networked vehicle available today. The model's advanced interface management concept allows for the integration of a huge range of apps, smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches into its completely new-generation infotainment system (MIB II). The Connected Golf also contains a large number of additional innovations. For example, the navigation system automatically detects frequently traveled routes, such as the one taken to work every day, without having to be activated by the driver. It then issues warnings on possible traffic jams and suggests a less congested alternative route.
At this year's CES, Volkswagen is also presenting the next evolutionary stage of "Park Assist" in the form of "Trained Parking." This system enables the vehicle to scan a frequently traveled route to a parking space, store the data, and then repeatedly re-travel the route in a partially automated manner. In another innovation stage, it will also be possible to carry out this procedure by remote control. In this case, the driver could exit the vehicle on the way to the parking space stored in and recognized by the system, let the car continue driving in the partially automated mode, and monitor its progress via a remote control device or a smartphone. This will also enable automatic exiting from a parking space along the stored and trained route.
As a fourth highlight in Las Vegas, Volkswagen is presenting the e-Golf Intelligent Charge, which offers a preview of how electric vehicles will be charged inductively in the future. Plugs and cables are no longer needed for this model, which automatically docks above a charging plate.

converging. We need to design future mobility to be even more intelligent and
networked." Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, CEO of Volkswagen AG, points out that
the automotive industry found itself in the midst of historical turning point at the
beginning of the 21st century. The car and the computer were merging. Volkswagen,
Europe's most successful car brand, has been instrumental in driving this
development. That is because the car – which operates intuitively, is networked
systematically, reacts intelligently and offers significantly greater convenience –
gives new innovative impetus to mobile life, making it more communicative, safer
and fascinating. This is why Volkswagen is demonstrating – with an entire fleet of
vehicles at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES; January 6 – 9)
– just how much the car and computer are already becoming intertwined today and
will continue to grow together in the future. The main focus here is on four aspects.
First, computer-driven drive systems. Second, app and smartphone integration.
Third, intuitive vehicle operation. Fourth, autonomous and semi-autonomous driving.
own. Pure electric cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles are continually increasing their
presence. The high production volume models have now arrived, and Volkswagen
is setting the pace with best-sellers like the Golf. Driven exclusively by electric
motors (as in the e-Golf), or by an alliance of a high-tech gasoline engine and
electric motor (as in the Golf GTE plug-in hybrid). The e-Golf and Golf GTE are the
protagonists of a new mobility. These cars would be inconceivable without on-
board electronics with computers that control such functions as battery charging
and, in the case of the hybrid models, switching between the different drive
sources. At CES, Volkswagen is showing, among other things, how electric cars will
be able to automatically dock to inductive charging stations and output signals that
indicate the battery charge state using the vehicle's exterior lights. Everything
computerdriven, of course.
the month, since Apple introduced its first generation iPhone in San Francisco.
Competitors followed, and the rest is history. The fact is that smartphones have
irreversibly changed the way we communicate and our everyday lives. It has long
been normal practice to have phones automatically connected to a car's hands-free
telephone system via Bluetooth and to have the smartphones stream their media
libraries into car infotainment and sound systems. But now Volkswagen is taking a
significant step forward. Last year, the second generation "modular infotainment
platform" (MIB II) was introduced. Along with the new radio and radio-navigation
systems, MirrorLink™ was also made available for the first time; it is used to
integrate the apps and operating layout of numerous Android smartphones into
cars (including Samsung, HTC, LG and Sony). Later this year, the MIB II will be
making its debut in the USA. At the same time as MirrorLink™ is introduced, two
other interfaces will also be launched under the App Connect label: CarPlay (Apple)
and Auto Android (Google). This will result in app integration for the key operating
systems. App Connect will significantly expand the range of today's Volkswagen
online services. Just as it launches in the USA, CarPlay and Auto Android will also
be launched by Volkswagen onthe European market.
not only merge with the mobile world; it will also integrate people into its operating
concept more ideally than ever. Here, Volkswagen is following a consistent strategy
of implementing user operation by touchscreen. Today, and in the future, the car
will be adapted more than ever to people by recognizing their movements – via
control based on proximity sensors and gesture recognition. Today, the latest
infotainment systems by Volkswagen can already detect the approach of a hand
with proximity sensors. Thanks to proximity sensors, the display automatically
switches over from a purely informative level to a more varied menu with optimally
sized controls. In the next revolutionary step – which Volkswagen is presenting in
the Golf R Touch concept vehicle at the 2015 CES – the infotainment unit will
precisely detect hand gestures via camera and understand them. Gesture control
will make it possible to control, in real space, displays and controls in virtual space
without having to touch a touchscreen. This benefits convenience and safety,
because it further reduces driver distractions while operating controls. At this
point, it is clear that the car and computer can no longer be viewedas separate
from one another. The car and computer are one.
future will need to be able to drive certain route segments autonomously if
necessary. Either fully autonomously or semi-autonomously, and this will be
introduced step by step. Even today, Park Assist by Volkswagen enables semi-
automated parking and exiting from parking spaces. The car executes the entire
steering process for the parking maneuver fully independently. At CES, Volkswagen
is now presenting another evolutionary stage of Park Assist: Trained Parking. Here,
the car scans a frequently driven path to a parking space via camera, and from that
point on it executes the path semi-automatically by computer control. In another
evolutionary stage, it will be possible to have the car parked without the driver
even needing to be present in the vehicle. The driver would maintain control over
the car via smartphone.
The high-performance of its computers, the brilliance of today's displays and the
recognition of precise human gestures are merging into a new interface generation
here. In the Golf R Touch concept vehicle, Volkswagen is presenting, for the first
time, an infotainment system that incorporates gesture control as a consistent
next development step that is based on current thinking in the area of intuitive
control. All it takes is a hand movement in the space in front of the infotainment
display of the Golf to make human and machine interact as one. Volkswagen is
thereby extending touchscreen operation into a third dimension.
• The development team for the Golf R Touch pursued the goal of developing an
interior and infotainment concept that would fulfill seemingly contradictory
requirements. Despite the continually growing complexity and numbers of functions,
this concept was intended to reduce driver distractions while attaining a maximum
of personalization and intuitive operation in the car. A vehicle was created in which
nearly all controls are implemented via touchscreens and sensor switches.
Therefore, the Golf R Touch is equipped with three displays: the 12.8-inch high-
resolution touchscreen of the infotainment system, a Control Center (8.0-inch
with touch feedback) arranged beneath it to control vehicle, climate control and
media functions as well as an Active Info Display (digitalized instruments, 12.3-inch).
The layouts of the central touch screen and the Active Info Display can be
customized rapidly, just as on a smartphone or tablet home screen today. The
same is true of the entire color staging in the interior.
• At the 2015 CES in Las Vegas, Volkswagen is showing maximum networking of the
car of today in the form of the Connected Golf. This e-Golf, which is equipped with
the latest generation (MIB II) infotainment system, incorporates an enormous range
of apps, smartphones and tablets via its progressive interface management system.
The umbrella brand for all online-based functionality is Volkswagen Car-Net; its
various features and applications are organized into several clusters. In the USA, for
example, they are Travel Link, e-Remote, Safe & Secure and from now on App
Connect. All of these clusters are implemented in the Connected Golf. A look at
today's App Connect is particularly exciting. As noted above, Volkswagen is one of
the first carmakers to integrate the vast majority of smartphone operating systems
in models like the Golf based on App Connect. The three underlying software
interfaces of App Connect are Mirror Link™, Android Auto (Google) and CarPlay
(Apple). Via these interfaces, the driver and passengers in the car are able to
use the many different apps of their smartphones over the infotainment system.
• Beyond the applications of Volkswagen Car-Net, the Connected Golf is equipped with
many other innovations. For example, Media Control enables the integration of
tablets and smartwatches into the infotainment system. Media Control uses a special
app that creates a rear seat entertainment system of a new era. Regular Routes is
the name of a function by which the navigation system automatically detects – i.e.
without needing to be activated by the driver – traffic disturbances on the daily
commute to work, for instance, and it autonomously suggests an available
alternative route. Parking Guide is another ingenious navigation feature. It embodies
a technology that finds parking sites that have a high probability of available parking
• This year, Volkswagen launched one of the world's first high production volume
electric cars on the American market in the form of the e-Golf – a zero-emission
vehicle with a range of up to 83 miles, optimal all-round characteristics and high-
tech equipment. In Las Vegas, Volkswagen is now presenting Intelligent Charge
in the e-Golf; it illustrates how electric cars will be used even more conveniently
in the future. A key theme here: over the mid-term it will be possible to offer
inductive charging as an alternative to cable-based charging. In this type of
charging, the car is parked over a charging plate. In the future, it will be
possible to see in just seconds whether the battery is still being charged, or
whether it is already fully charged by looking at the vehicle's exterior lights. The
e-Station Guide will not only assist the electric car drivers in finding a desired
charging station. They will also be informed about their location and charging
equipment as well as payment options. As an additional function, the Digital Key
– an electronic vehicle key – is implemented in this Golf. This feature lets third
parties use a smartphone or smartwatch to temporarily and safely gain access
to the vehicle and to start or stop the engine.
• Park Assist from Volkswagen automatically guides the car into parallel and
perpendicular parking spaces (in reverse) and can also automatically exit parallel
parking spaces. First Volkswagen models will also be able to automatically park
into perpendicular parking spaces in a forward direction. When parking or exiting
a parking space, the system assists the driver by autonomously making optimal
movements of the steering wheel to stay on the ideal line. At CES, Volkswagen
is now introducing an advanced evolutionary stage of Park Assist known as
Trained Parking. Here the car (an e-Golf) uses a camera – mounted in the base
of the rear-view mirror – to scan a frequently used path into a parking space,
and from then on the parking process is executed semi-automatically and highly
precisely by sensors and computer. In the future, it will of course also be possible
to semi-automatically park above a station for inductive charging. In another
evolutionary stage, plans call for the driver no longer needing to stay in the car
during parking. The driver would just monitor the operation of parking or exiting
a parking space with a smartphone as a "remote control" device.

Audi at the CES 2015
Audi's CES presence is centered on the car's communication with its surroundings. Focus topics include piloted driving, new Audi connect solutions, new infotainment modules, control and display concepts and new developments in lighting technology. Among the highlights of Audi's CES presence are the hybrid-powered Audi prologue piloted driving showcar and the interior model of the new Audi Q7, itself debuting at the Detroit auto show.
"Digitalization and networking in all areas are the megatrends of the present," says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, board member for technical development at AUDI AG. "The car is becoming a mobile device on four wheels. Connectivity is the key to the future and a crucial area of our development work. We have continually pioneered the use of electronic technologies for years now."
Extremely convenient: driver assistance system and piloted driving
Driver assistance systems make driving more pleasant, safer and more efficient. They are available in almost all of Audi's model lines. Debuting in the Audi Q7, to be launched in 2015, are groundbreaking solutions such as the Predictive Efficiency Assistant, the Trailer Assistant and adaptive cruise control including a congestion assistant.
For the company's next big step, Audi will introduce its new technologies for piloted driving before the end of this decade. These can take over driving in certain situations if the driver wishes them to do so. Audi has been performing pioneering work in this area for years and shown how thrilling piloted driving can be. In October 2014, the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept lapped the Grand Prix circuit at Hockenheim at speeds up to 240 km/h (149.1 mph) with no driver on board, making it the sportiest piloted driving car in the world.
Audi has presented its solutions for piloted driving and driving in congested areas at CES in previous years. Now, in time for 2015 CES, the brand sets another milestone with the Audi A7 piloted driving concept featuring a wide range of standard and close-to-standard sensors, which will drive from Stanford in Silicon Valley via Bakersfield to Las Vegas.
Contributing to Audi's edge in piloted driving is the central driver assistance controller (zFAS), which processes information gathered by the sensors to create a detailed impression of the car’s surroundings. Audi connect's superfast online connection will route this data to a Cloud-based IT backend. There, the data will be processed using machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence before it is transmitted back to the car. The car thus continually expands its intelligence as it drives, ceaselessly improving its performance in complex situations. At the same time, other users of this technology can also benefit from this accumulation of information.
Farsighted: Audi's lighting innovations
Audi has been a leader in automobile lighting technology for years. Groundbreaking innovations available in several current model lines include matrix LED headlights for intelligent and flexible illumination of the road surface as well as dynamic turning signals.
Another world first is the laser highbeam available in Audi's high-end R8 LMX edition model. Its range is more than 500 feet. At CES, Audi will introduce Audi Matrix laser technology as the next step, a laser light providing high-resolution and finely tuned illumination of the roadway ahead. Another innovation is construction area lighting. This projects two markedly bright light strips onto the road, thus visualizing the car's width.
Attractive and intuitive: controls and displays in the TT and the Q7
Clear and intuitive operation has always been a strength of Audi. At CES, the brand will show the most recent advances in control and display technology as available in the new Audi TT and the upcoming Audi Q7.
One highlight is the Audi virtual cockpit. This fully-digital combined instrument provides the driver with minutely rendered, brilliant 3D graphics of all information and offers different display modes to choose from on its 12.3-inch TFT monitor. Audi virtual cockpit is powered by the T 30 graphics processor made by Audi’s cooperation partner NVDIA.
Audi will also present innovations in control technology The TT and the new Q7 will feature MMI terminals with an all-new interface logic. This will emulate the concept of modern smartphones, where flat hierarchies replace sprawling menu trees.
Four elements: the traditional push-turn knob, the multifunction steering wheel, natural voice operation accommodating everyday speech, and a touchpad accepting signs and multi-finger gestures, are available to control the system's numerous functions, which include telephone, radio, media and navigation. In the Audi TT, the MMI all-in-touch's interface is on the knob, while in the Audi Q7, it is a separate surface. The system provides haptic feedback after every entry.
All-round networking: Audi connect
The term Audi connect covers all applications and developments networking the car with its owner, the Internet, public infrastructure and other automobiles. This is another field of technology where Audi continually expands its lead.
A central hardware element, the Audi connect module, connects the car with the internet via LTE, the fastest available transmission standard. The car's passengers can connect their mobile devices to a WLAN hotspot, which also provides the driver with customized online in-car services from the Audi connect portfolio. One of the innovations in this area is Online Media Streaming, which offers access to Napster and Aupeo! music services, and online updating of the navigational map.
Additional services will be available in the new Audi Q7, among them the Audi smartphone interface. Depending on whether a customer connects an iOS or an Android device, the interface will call up the Apple Car Play or Android Auto platform onto the car's MMI monitor. At the core of the offering is an enormous selection of music titles. In addition, both platforms provide navigation and messaging functions and appointment reminders.
Future car-to-X technologies are another key element of Audi connect. These will enable Audi models to interact with traffic lights in a city to navigate traffic faster and more efficiently. Another solution will permit cashless payment in a parking garage or at a kerbside meter, a third one will identify speed limits and spot dangers and also relay the corresponding information to other cars.
Another innovation presented by Audi at CES is the Audi mobile key. Here, a smartphone or a smartwatch provides access to the vehicle, making them highly flexible complements to existing keys. The mobile key uses Near Field Communication (NFC), which is available even when the mobile device's battery is empty.
Powered by NVIDIA: infotainment
At CES, Audi will be showing attractive innovations in infotainment. One of these can be seen in the Audi phone box in the new Q7, which permits easy pairing of a smartphone. It can now inductively charge compatible phones under the Qi standard.
Another first is 3D sound. In the new Audi Q7, the premium sound systems from Bose and Bang & Olufsen integrate additional speakers which open up height as a spatial dimension. A sophisticated algorithm extracts information for the third dimension from conventional stereo or 5.1 recordings and processes it for reproduction via the speaker array.
Audi to set new standards in infotainment with its Modular Infotainment Matrix and its technology network. The brand's revolutionary approach involving a modularized electronic architecture brings Audi’s development cycles closer to those in the fast-paced consumer electronics business.
2012 saw the debut of the Modular Infotainment Matrix (MIB) with an NVIDIA T 20 chip as its heart in the Audi A3. A mere one-and-a-half years later, the MIB’s second stage has been deployed in the Audi TT and in the new Audi A6 and A7 Sportback. Again, an NVIDIA processor plays a key role. The T 30 is a quad-core chip running a 3D graphic program from specialist software manufacturer. Rightward to render brilliant graphics on two displays simultaneously. Thanks to the matrix' modular structure, Audi can keep it continuously up-to-date and quickly integrate attractive innovations from consumer electronics.
Another chip from NVIDIA, the Tegra 4, powers the Audi tablet debuting in the new Q7. With an active 10.1-inch display, the Audi tablet's will provide mobile rear-seat entertainment. In the car, the tablet will connect itself to the on-board infotainment and navigation system via WLAN. What is special about the Audi tablet is that it has been expressly designed for use in the car. This means it is both high-class and robust. Of course, it can also be used on a WLAN outside the car.
Audi as driving force: electronic architecture
To expand its lead in hardware, Audi set up the Progressive Semi Conductor Program (PSCP) in late 2010. Under the program, Audi directly involves not just its system suppliers but also semiconductor makers. It is a key factor for future innovations.
As in hardware, so Audi develops solutions of its own in software – a task falling mainly to e.solutions GmbH, a subsidiary.
In vehicle electrics, Audi has developed a new, scalable architecture, the 48 volt onboard partial network. It will soon complement conventional 12 volt networks and permit deployment of new high-performance electric components. These will include an electric compressor as a supplementary turbocharger or an extra-strong generator capable of recuperating a higher amount of kinetic energy and, when used as a motor, transforming the car’s powertrain into an efficient mild hybrid.
Future power: electromobility – charging without a cable
Under the name e-tron, Audi resolutely advances the electrification of the powertrain. One of many aspects in this is contactless charging of all- or part-electric e-tron models. Audi is putting great effort into induction-based supply of energy, known as Audi wireless charging (AWC).
The brand has developed a power matrix offering numerous options so as to provide each customer with a solution filling his or her precise needs. Approaches range from a 48-volt onboard network to plug-in hybrid powertrains. These marry the advantages of a combustion engine with those of electric traction, providing the customer with long range, power and efficiency all at the same time.
The launch of the A3 Sportback e-tron in 2014 was Audi’s successful entrance into plug-in hybrid technology. This will now be swiftly rolled out across the model range, with the medium and top segment next in line. A new e-tron model is set for introduction every year. At the same time, Audi is working on purely-electric vehicles with high-capacity batteries and powerful motors requiring no compromises in terms of range and usability.
A look into the future: Audi models at CES
Four spectacular cars round off Audi's presence in Las Vegas. They are the TT Roadster, RS 7 Sportback and R8 LMX production models as well as the Audi prologue piloted driving showcar which was purpose-built for CES.
The showcar expresses progressive technology in its entire character. Its brightly lit interior fuses the car's architecture with the display and control concept to create a novel unit. The entire front of the instrument is executed as a three-part touch display. Add to this an innovative, ultrathin and flexible OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display.
The showcar's hybrid powertrain has a muscular 4.0 TFSI working together with a powerful e-motor. System power output of 505 kW (677 hp) and a combined torque of both engines of 950 Nm (700.7 lb-ft) enable the Audi prologue piloted driving to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.5 seconds. Its CO2 emissions are 185 g/km (297.7 g/mi).
